YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: Spring Game
« on: April 18, 2016, 09:35:01 PM »
I watched Ricky Davis in the Spring Game last year I think it was or the year before that and in my opinion he threw the ball well.  I saw a few throws in games last year and got the same impression; he throws well.  Maybe he can't read defenses or learn the system; not sure there.  And I don't advocate a running QB, but on third down it sure helps when no one is open or when our backs get the ball, his fake has meaning to the defense. I still think with our talent, he gives us the best chance to win compared to what we saw last year.  The two new QB's, not sure, but he looked better to me compared to them in the Spring Game.

Last year I thought Ricky Davis should have been allowed to throw more and that he would be the productive QB and win the staring job. I am coming to the same conclusion after the Spring Game.
We have small quick backs and a questionable Oline.  Without the threat of the QB run, our offense is in trouble.  Davis is very quick and willing to run and has shown he can run effectively.  And he can throw.  Wells is a good thrower, but with no run option the defenses have our number, especially late in the game.

Ricky should start with Hosick in the hunt to start or back up.  I don't think we have a chance doing the same thing as last year.

Really a great double hitter win for YSU.  In the past our pitching was not up to the level of competition for the big boys.  Watching those games shows that our pitching and defense is good and hopefully we can do well in the Horizon League.  Also good to see Kyle Benyo do well.  All 3 at bats in the 2nd game were strong with a double and 2 more hit well.  Need bats that can hit against good pitching and I think he can do it based on his history last year.

I am going.  Hope we play well. The last few games have been embarasing for the players for sure.

Lots of good play.  Kauffman made a big difference and gave us a chance inside.

Coach Barnes is a great coach, but I think we will have trouble with Green Bay and Wright State. Sara Cash is the real deal and is very important to keep out of foul trouble in these difficult games. We also need Janae Jackson in more to create offence. She seems to get into the dog house often.

I think he still has issues with his foot and as a result has limited playing time.  It would sure be an improvement if he could be on the floor.  We are getting killed in the paint.

They said on the broadcast that his grandmother pa$$ed away and he was home with family.

He has been a big contributor so far this year.

Great job by both teams.  Rare day when they both win.

Many had doubts about both teams, but things look good for now.

As I see it, with our O line problems and lack of a big back, we need the QB to have the threat of running to keep the defense honest and to give the QB a chance when pa$$ blocking breaks down. Wells can't do those things so the run game is slowed and the pa$$ game must happen fast so he doesn't get sacked. That leads to the interceptions due to the quick read needed to avoid the sack.  Pa$$ plays never get extended with Wells.  So from what I have seen, only Davis can get us over those issues and give us a chance to win against top opponents.  Not sure what his other issues are, but the coaches must think they are significant.

What happened to Ricky Davis?  He has a year in the system and in the spring game looked like he could throw much better that Nania, is taller, and seems quick. Is he in the dog house?

Ricky Davis has much more upside than Dante Nania.

Really impressed with the tournament play.  The defense was outstanding for YSU; really impressed by Shane Willoughby at short and Phil Lapari at second.  Both made outstanding plays that were way beyond routine.  Only one error in the tournament by the left fielder.  Also the play in right field in the 8th in the last game was an aggressive play to win the tournament that just about backfired.  Looked like he was close to the catch.  Compare to the defensive play by the other teams and we really had an advantage.  Most of our scoring was aided by walks, hit batsmen, errors, and questionable plays.  Also the pitching during the season was really hurt by walks which were held to a minimum in the tournament except for the one bad inning against Milwaukee which was a typical occurrence during the season.  Also great to see Jeremy Quinlan do so well, being a local walk-on.  Lots of talent locally that maybe we can now attract from the "B" League.  Not sure if we pursued that local talent previously, but with the outstanding play of some of our local players, it can be helpful in the future.

Great Tournament play for sure.  The other teams did not hold up well at all under the pressure and in most of our wins than was a factor. YSU played like Champions in every sense of the word.  Congratulations to all the Players and Coaches for a job well done.

I agree.  Both Jim Tressel and Ron Strollo are top quality individuals who will do the best possible job with the limited resources available.  I do not believe we could get a better pair to do the best that is possible with YSU athletics considering the environment they are in at YSU.

I agree that the loss of Weber is bad for us.  But I think it is a case of him being homesick and girlsick more than anything the current staff did or did not do.  It is unfortunate, but difficult to blame someone for his exit.
